Essential Oil Benefits:
-Lemon Essential Oil
Nourishes damaged skin.
“Lemon essential oil benefits for skin can include reducing acne, nourishing damaged skin and hydrating skin.”
-Grapefruit Essential Oil
Cleansing, Antioxidant, Smoothing.
“Grapefruit contains natural acids that cleanse the skin when used in skincare products. Grapefruit is loaded with vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant to protect the skin and also is essential to the formation of collagen, a major building block of our skin. Collagen production is key when it comes to keeping skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free.
Pink grapefruit is also rich in beta-carotene, which is amazing at slowing the aging of skin cells and has been known to also improve hyperpigmentation. Skincare experts also love how pink grapefruit contains lycopene, which is known to guard against sun-induced skin damage and mutation as well as inflammation in general. Last but not least, grapefruit naturally contains a breakout-fighting and pore-cleansing ingredient you’ve probably heard of before: salicylic acid, making grapefruit a potential home remedy for acne”
“Grapefruit’s super start antioxidant, vitamin C, has also been shown to prevent harmful changes to DNA caused by free radicals while also preventing carcinogen development.”
“Grapefruit also contains significant levels of anti-inflammatory and skin-cleansing agents, including the enzyme bromelain, which is known to help break down cellulite. So if you’re wondering how to get rid of cellulite, grapefruit just may do the trick.”
-Lime Essential Oil
“Lime essential oil tones up muscles, tissues, and skin including the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, and excretory systems. This tonic effect helps to retain youth … and prevents the appearance of aging symptoms like … wrinkles, age spots…”
-Orange Essential Oil
Citrus fruits are known to provide high levels of vitamin C that help protect and heal skin, making oranges one of the best vitamin C foods around. Orange essential oil is also very beneficial for fighting signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots since it promotes the production of collagen. Because of its antioxidant power, it slows the rate of skin damage experienced from UV light exposure, pollution and toxicity…
Orange oil is effective at fighting bacteria and inflammation on the skin that can lead to acne…Redness, pain and swelling from acne should improve…”
So…Tallow? What is it?***
Tallow is animal oil that has been slowly and carefully kettle rendered from the suet of animals like cows or sheep. Our tallow is slowly kettle-rendered from organically farmed and grass-fed/finished cows. Due to the diet and care of our cows, this gives our tallow an amazing vitamin and fatty acid profile that can only be found in animal oils.
Why have I never heard of this?
There is nothing new under the sun, and that is true with tallow. Tallow was was prized by generations in the past, but as chemical products became more and more popular, tallow was left behind and forgotten. Now, as people are becoming more aware of the side effects of harsh chemicals and man-made products, we find ourselves turning back to what nature had provided all along.
What are the main nutritional BENEFITS?***
• An amazing vitamin profile- An amazing combo of vitamins A, D, E, and K that you can only find in an animal oil. Put them together with our plant oils and you have a match made in heaven.
Tallow is easily absorbed by your skin!
• The AMAZING fatty acid profile.
o Palmitic Acid- Protects skin from the environment and smooths out the skin.
o Omega 7 (Palmitoleic Acid)- Anti-Microbial.
o CLA- Anti- Calms inflamed skin and kills bacteria.
o Stearic Acid- found in our own oils, this amazing fatty acid brings moisture to the skin, softens, rejuvenates and has anti-inflammatory properties. Helps give skin that “bounce” back.
o Omega 9 (Oleic Acid)- Awesome carrier to the other oils and helps penetrate these nutrients deep into the skin.
Tallow has also been used for extremely dry patches of skin, small wound care for its restorative properties, clarifying skin, rashes, and to give skin that hydrated and glowing look!
